Re: Recommendations for a bike rack?

We use the Thule roof bars and Proride racks on the roof of our Caddy van when we dont have enough space inside. It does zap the mpg over a long journey but as mentioned above its a great place to leave the bikes locked when sleeping in the van, or if your not riding for a day :lol: https://lh3.goog...

Re: Active travel carriage on WH railway line.

We need these everywhere! One loaded bike usually takes up 3 bike 'spaces' on our local trains.

Re: Brake Squeal!

Thanks for the replies all!

Yep, I am now also convinced its a micro leak misting some mineral oil into the pads/rotor......new caliper time :roll:

I did also try sintered and organic pads and both had the same result.

WTD: Handlebar Bag

Hi All,

What's anyone got in the way of handlebar bags that they are no longer using? Around the 10 -15l mark would be ideal.

Many Thanks,

Re: ever wish you were strong enough to ride single speed ?

I switched from winter single speed mode to gears on my Krampus for some upcoming loaded trips.

It's way more fun to ride single speed.....but it is relatively flat around here.
